Officers had responded to a call of a “subject yelling” in the 2000 block of Locust Avenue (map) shortly before 1:30 a.m. when they discovered a man had been stabbed to death inside a residence, Sgt. Brad Johnson with the Long Beach Police Department said.

The victim’s identity has not yet been released.

At the time of the incident, two children were found to be asleep inside the home, according to Johnson.

The Department of Children and Family Services was contacted and the kids were returned to their mother, who was working at the time the stabbing occurred, he said.

A man who was attempting to leave the scene was being detained by police for questioning, according to Johnson.

It was not immediately known if there was a relationship between the person being detained and the victim.
